@sunny I’m 12 miles from Sky Harbor and use it due to the accuracy, and so far the rain reports there relative to my home have been reasonable. The 1st couple of nearby PWSs that I looked at didn’t seem accurate at all, but I need to give it another look. I think I’m in better shape down here relative to where you are by the McDowells, probably thanks to those high mountains that you have, or I’ve just been lucky this season.
I looked into putting in my own PWS, but when I look at the recommendations for placement I don’t think I’d be able to install it right. Either it needs to be fairly far from any building, or it needs to be something like 13 ft above it. If I did that I’m sure I’d have the HOA sending me a letter or two.
We have about a 10k sq. ft. property, which is actually somewhat on the larger side for the nearby neighborhoods. It makes me wonder about how ideal the PWSs I see around me are. Up by you I’m sure you have nicer sided properties so maybe you can find a good one.
